Know More: What You Feel Depends On What You Eat

Tuesday, January 02, 2018

Were you aware that the foods we’re so used to eating can contribute to the way we feel? Pearl Mathias brings you a study that tells you more

Lina Begdache, assistant professor of health and wellness studies at Binghamton University, along with fellow Binghamton researchers, conducted a study which found that diet and dietary practices differentially affect mental health in young adults versus older adults.

The researchers conducted an anonymous Internet survey asking people around the world to complete the Food-Mood Questionnaire (FMQ), which includes questions on food groups that have been associated with neurochemistry and neurobiology.  Another finding from the analysis of the data by Begdache and assistant professor of Systems Science and Industrial Engineering, Nasim Sabounchi, concluded that young adults who ate meat (red or white) less than three times a week and exercised less than three times a week showed a significant mental distress.

“Conversely, mature adult moods seem to be more sensitive to regular consumption of sources of antioxidants and abstinence of food that inappropriately activates the innate fight-or-flight response (commonly known as the stress response),” added Begdache. As we age, our ability to regulate stress decreases, so if we consume food that activates the stress response (such as coffee and too much carbohydrates), we are more likely to experience mental distress.
